The Principle of Drama

Tore Boeckmann

Presented at: OOC 2001

Date: Oct 26, 2001

This lecture identifies the principle underlying the phenomenon of drama, or dramatic action, and integrates this principle with Ayn Rand's theory of evaluation (specifically her idea of "teleological measurement"). The lecture explains why certain human actions (dramatic ones) are worthy objects of esthetic contemplation, and others not.
